WU LYF @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
WU LYF released Go Tell Fire to the Mountain digitally on their own LYF imprint last month, and played two sold out NYC shows this past weekend as part of a short tour. We posted pics from Mercury Lounge. A few from Knitting Factory are in this post.
WU LYF will continue to tour the world between now and the end of the year, including a string of just-announced North American dates in November. That includes a Brooklyn show on November 8 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for MHOW go on sale Friday, 8/5, at noon, with an AmEx pre-sale starting two days earlier. All dates are listed below.
Go Tell Fire to the Mountain will see a physical release on September 6 via the band's L Y F imprint. Some videos, the KF pics and all dates below...
